An online multiplayer game, PlayersUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), reportedly claimed the life of a teenage boy in Lahore’s Ichhra area on Sunday.

According to police, the boy aged 16 committed suicide after he was told by his family he could not play the game anymore.

The latest incident is followed by two deaths of young boys in Punjab capital Lahore in June 2010 where a 20-year-old boy took his own life in Sadar Bazaar neighbourhood in North Cantonment and a 16-year-old boy ended his own life in Gulshan-e-Abbas, Phase 2.

Shehryar’s brother Shoaib told investigators that they belong to Quetta and his brother was addicted to the online game.
